American Airlines has announced the launch of new Baggage Alerts that notifies flying guests about the status of their checked baggage. The notification, officially known as the Customer Baggage Notification or CBN also notifies guests if the bag is on the same plane or not, shortly after landing at the destination airport.

According to a Press Release issued by American Airlines on its website, guests flying the American Airlines receive three types of alerts:

  • Early Baggage Arrival – This message alerts customers that their bag arrived before them and directs them to pick up their bag at the Baggage Service Office (BSO).
  • Late Baggage Arrival – Go to the Baggage Service Office. This message directs customers, for example those with an international segment in their reservation, to see an agent at the BSO.
  • Late Baggage Arrival – Mobile Baggage Order (MBO). This message advises customers to fill out a Mobile Baggage Order, or MBO, on their mobile device. The automated MBO asks for the customer’s delivery details and a bag description to help expedite reuniting the customer with their items. By using the MBO, customers no longer need to stop at the BSO to file a claim.

"To receive alerts, customers can use the American Airlines App, sign up for an AAdvantage® account or provide contact information during booking or check-in", the press release continued.
